DriveSavers Breaks New Ground by Using X-Ray Technology in Data Recovery

The data recovery company is using X-ray technology in ways never before imagined.

(Novato, CA, February 2023) – DriveSavers Data Recovery continues to be the global leader in advancing data recovery capabilities through state-of-the-art tools, proprietary techniques, and research and development. The company’s latest data recovery advancement involves X-ray technology.

In November 2022, DriveSavers installed an X-ray system capable of real-time X-ray images as engineers use an automated stage to move the data storage. Until now, this technology has been used for inspection, failure analysis, and quality assurance for electronics. Data recovery is a new way to use this type of device.

DriveSavers began using the X-ray system on incoming devices in December 2022 and, with it, will continue to recover data that others deem unrecoverable.

How DriveSavers is using X-ray technology:

  • Evaluation
    Identify irregularities and critical damage in storage media without risking device integrity.
  • Verification
    Confirm suspected component failure, and validate proficiency of ball grid
    array (BGA) rework.
  • Research and Development
    Explore new silicon-level data recovery techniques using X-ray imaging to
    identify failures in flash storage chips and packaging.

“Using X-ray technology is already improving diagnostics and expanding our data recovery capabilities,” said Director of Engineering Mike Cobb. “We look forward to many more ways it will improve our accuracy, efficiency, and recovery rate.”
